AFTERLIFE

In her new production, Lillian Stillwell explores themes of spiritual friendship, sudden death and the longing for immortality, placing them in the context of club culture.

AFTERLIFE takes its inspiration from the ancient Epic of Gilgamesh, posing the same questions:
Will I find my soul mate?
What demons must be conquered to live peacefully?
Does true love have a price?
Would I want to live forever after losing the one I loved most?

Using choreographic methods developed in her extensive work with classical, baroque, musical and operatic scores, Lillian Stillwell is now working with electronic dance music for the first time. This physically virtuosic duet will be accompanied by a live DJ and followed by an open dance party for the audience.
